It is not a first time I have been to Amsterdam, and I always have the same impression about this city. “Amsterdam is weird!”, but oh well, who or what is not?
For example, a proof of Amsterdam weirdness…
But is also beautiful when the tourists are hiding and when you can take a stroll in the empty town in the morning:
Also, when having a brunch in a small restaurant owned by a sweet lady (who sold “space” brownies at the counter for 6 Euro per piece), we got a mint tea. Actually a mint tea,,,
There was also no escape from tulips, but who can object to them or resist them – including airport interior designers and cafe owners…
Amsterdam is a city I have been to a few times, but I have never actually been to longer than one day. And no matter what the only Dutch I know – Senff – says, I will come back to see more!
And the rule is – when you have a long layover in Amsterdam, or anywhere else, just get out to check out what is there. Well, that’s actually not the rule, that’s what I prefer to do 🙂
